Hi! And thanks so much for your interest in our family portrait services!
Our team of staff photographers would love the opportunity to work with you and your family. We have sessions available all week long, and even offer both AM and PM time slots to accommodate your schedule. Please remember that the best light of the day will yield the best results which means closest to sunrise and sunset.
How much is this?
The value of your investment is based on the photographer’s time and talent and we currently offer one simple package starting at $500 for a single family portrait. This includes: your photographer for up to an hour, lab development and retouching, all images available for preview and download in a gallery. There is an $150 charge per additional family.
Do I get the digital copies?
Yes, the digital downloads are included.
Who will be my photographer?
You will be assigned one of our studio photographers for your session. Your assigned photographer has a portfolio available to for your viewing at any time. You will also be speaking to your photographer personally before your session to go over any questions you may have.
Can Ann take my family portraits?
Yes, she can. Her fee starts at $750 for the same package listed above.
Her rate is higher?
Yes, of course. As the gallery and studio owner, along with her reputation and experience, clients pay a premium for her talent and experience.
What to wear?
While some may opt for the more traditional white shirts and jeans, over the years we have found that picking 2 or 3 colors that mix well together wind up looking great in photos. Think Navy, white, pink. A range of blues, etc. Contrast and color work well with beach photos. Try to stay away from reds, orange and neons!
But what if I have to cancel?
All deposits are nonrefundable, however we do understand that you may need to cancel your session due to illness. Please do your best to provide the studio with at least 48 hours of notice so that your time may be made available to other clients.
What if it rains?
Any outdoor portrait entails MANY variables. Please be open to the fact that blue skys and sunshine don’t always make the best photos. The most important thing is that everyone is present and comfortable. We like to make the final call on your session as close to the schedule time as possible in the interest of getting you the best lighting for your portrait.
